Originally in the FAQ, the "target audience" phrase (i.e. "professional and amateur cooks and chefs" on the cooking.se FAQ) had a yellow background. This was accomplished by surrounding it in an HTML tag, specifically
<span class="revision-comment">, which makes it consistent in appearance with other parts of the FAQ.
It would seem that this text block has been switched from pure HTML to Markdown, and the span tag is not supported. So even though I add it, and it actually "sticks" (I can see that the tags are still there if I edit it again), it's never actually displayed or even rendered out to the browser.
Is there any workaround for this? If not, is it possible to whitelist the
<span> tag for the moderator-editable content areas?
